500 Days of Summer (See it if you like good movies)

I have finally viewed a movie about love that is truly about love. 500 Days of Summer is the most accurate portrayal of love and fate I have ever seen. This movie refreshingly abandons most Hollywood conventions (you'll know it when you see the the musical number in the middle, perfectly done). As the movie poster tagline reads, "This is not a love story. This is a story about love."

If you don't relate to this movie, then you haven't been through enough relationships. Especially, relationships that hurt and confuse and ultimately open your eyes.

500 Days of Summer is probably one of the top five movies of 2009 that no one will ever see. And you'll know why after you see it. I highly recommend it, but if you're looking for a typical movie about romance and love go find Reese Witherspoon or Cameron Diaz. If you want something real and poetic, look toward Zooey Deschanel and 500 Days of Summer.
